Private Trumpet Teacher

In the past 4 years, I have tutored dozens of students and worked with different trumpet players in my area. As a music major at the University of Illinois, I seek a way to continue my passion for teaching and seeing students develop into wonderful players. Trained in general music, theory, and skills in teaching, I can truly connect with your student and ensure that they gain knowledge and learn to love playing their horn!

The most valuable way a student can learn is if he or she has a positive connection with the teacher. In my case, I ensure that I understand not only the student's strengths and places for improvement, but also the uniqueness of his or her character and what teaching methods the student responds to. Every child is unique in how they learn, and all deserve a positive experience without intimidation and impatience from teachers. Teaching music also goes hand in hand with teaching your student dedication, work ethic, and strong character!

I’ve been playing trumpet since I was 10 years old and truly understand how to overcome the hurdles that make the trumpet challenging for beginners. I focus on technique and the reason behind it in an effort to establish good habits and help young players avoid the mistakes I’ve made in my 30 year career of playing.

I've played with Adisa for years. He's a great communicator, both musically and verbally. Though I've never taken lessons from him, he's an exceptional player and listener; he's patient, methodical and thoughtful, and I'm sure a great teacher.
Erik
I know Adisa as a musician and performer. He is a wonderful musician, fits well into any type of configuration and always comes across as a team player. As a performer he is delightful - great energy, wonderful interaction skills, and very friendly

Eugenia W.
He is professional and patient yet he meets you where you are. I had played piano many years ago and he quickly assessed where I am today and asked what I wanted to accomplish at this point. He showed me things that I was never taught all those years ago. He is kind and so easy to work with. Can't say enough about him. Wasn't sure if I could play again after so many years. I have had hand surgery and can't wait to continue my lessons. He showed me that I can. Great for this old lady, I mean elderly person.

Online Trumpet Teacher

My passion is creating music and inspiring others to create music. I learned to read music at the age of 6 and shortly after started playing the trumpet. The opportunity to learn the language of music is such a great gift with many benefits beyond creativity. My passion is to give this opportunity to other young aspiring musicians. My goal is to guide each student according to their individual needs to reach their goals.

About Patrick

Irish music was offered at the Gaelic American Club my family was apart of. While in CT, I played with several groups: Litmus, an experimental jazz gr

"Caleb was recommended to me by friends when my son inquired about trumpet lessons to augment the lessons he was receiving at his school. My son is 11 years old. Caleb has been instrumental in making my son have a ton more confidence in his trumpet playing skills and has taught my son to become a better player. My son's school band was not a good fit for him so he left, but he insisted on continuing with lessons with Caleb. Now my son is able to take his trumpet experience with his "rock band" shows.

Caleb is patient, well versed in music, and is incredibly talented. We take weekly lessons with Caleb and have been very happy with his teaching style and my son's ability to become a better trumpet player.

I HIGHLY recommend Caleb for trumpet lessons for any age!"

Pasquale has a fun sense of humour, which our son loves. He has brought fun to the lesson and our son looks forward to his lessons twice a week."

"My 11-year-old son has now had 3 lessons with Jeremy, and we are both extremely happy with his progress. My eldest had saxophone lessons through takelessons.com, but he already had some experience. I'm pleasantly surprised that with no prior trumpet experience, and without anyone else in our family playing trumpet, my son is doing really well. Jeremy is patient, kind, and encouraging. He does an excellent job explaining what he is looking for and takes a systematic approach in structuring the lessons."
